[prMac.com] San Francisco - January 17, 2008 - nova media is proud to announce that its new product Fone2Phone has won the Mac Observer Editors' Choice Award at Macworld Expo 2008. Fone2Phone is a sleek utility for Macintosh, iPod, and iPhone users that will copy data from an ordinary cell phone to the Macintosh computer in one streamlined operation, making iPhone and iPod migration much simpler.
"The Mac Observer always aims to bring the latest and greatest to our readers," said Editor in Chief Bryan Chaffin. "This year we've decided to take it up a notch and recognize the best new products to come out of the Mac market with this special honor. We expect this to be an annual event that the whole Macintosh community will eagerly anticipate."
Fone2Phone offers a simple wizard interface for copying contacts, events, tasks, notes, bookmarks, photos, music and movies from the old cell phone to the Mac. It is so seamlessly integrated with Macintosh desktop applications, user interaction is only required to select the cell phone and which data to copy.
"We are thrilled to have created one of the best new products in the Mac market," said Jan Fuellemann, PR spokesperson at nova media. "We are working hard to support even more cell phones with Fone2Phone in the coming weeks."
After Fone2Phone has finished the copying process, iTunes can be used as usual to determine which data should be transferred to the iPhone or iPod during the next sync operation.
Fone2Phone requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 (10.5.1 or higher for Leopard) and a compatible cell phone. Fone2Phone has an introductory price of Euro 12,52 plus VAT (approximately $19 U.S.) until Jan. 31. After that, FoneLink will cost Euro 16,72 plus VAT (approximately $25 U.S.).
